About Flags for the Flagless

Police officers Charley Foley and Bradley Clark founded “Flags for the Flagless” after repeatedly seeing un-used flag poles throughout Tucson, AZ. Charley Foley comes from a line of veterans and Bradley Clark is a 20 year combat Army veteran. Both are mindfully respectful of all that our country stands for and what the American Flag represents. They both hope to foster a sense of patriotism and pride in the community with the “Flags for the Flagless” project.

“FFF” seeks out businesses, organizations, homes and schools to provide American Flags for classrooms and un-used flag poles. They also take on an educational role, providing historical facts, images and American Flag protocol information to the public. “Flags for the Flagless” plans to reach out to as many schools as possible, on both a local and national level, to ensure that American Flags will fly in their classrooms. And they will continue to hang American Flags on flag poles throughout Tucson, Arizona and the USA.

Some where in wheelchairs, some had walkers. Some could stand, others could not. Today at Handmaker Assisted Living Center we had some WW2 veterans in the crowd as two new flags were raised at the entrance to the Center. They had never had an American flag flying and with the sharp eye of @azmom4books she told us to go check it. FFF roped the poles, bought the pulleys and purchased one new American flag and one new Arizona flag. When the National Anthem played some struggled to stand but did and stood proud. Thank you TPD Honor Guard for being a part of this historic event. 🇺🇸

Robin Williams portrays the American Flag...(rare) What a GREAT PROFORMANCE!

Today Flags for the Flagless along with Tucson Police Chief Magnus and Paul Volpe of Nova Home Loans and his family, presented 13 classroom flags to students and their children at Teenage Parent High School. The youngest student is 14 years old with a 1 year-old child and today I met a 19 year-old who is expecting in July. They wanted to bring a sense of community, responsibility and unity to their school and new American flags was the perfect way to do this. To say that today was impactful would be putting it mildly. Thank you Chief, Paul and Bri for your continuing support of FFF.🇺🇸

I had the pleasure of meeting Boo Johnson, an amazing artist from Portland, Oregon. If you're looking for an American flag for your home that isn't made out of metal or wood, but real paint to canvas, I highly recommend you visit her website. One of the best I've seen and she's very personable.🇺🇸

"There were injuries in the vehicles and witnesses on scene described the occupants of one of the involved vehicles as getting out of their damaged vehicle and leaving on foot,” said Salt Lake County Sheriff Jim Winder.
On Jan 16, 2016 Ofc Douglas Barney, an 18 year police veteran, tried to chase the suspects. When he approached them, the male suspect, shot him fatally once in the head. Barney was transported to Intermountain Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.

Salt Lake City police say Barney was the married father of three children who had just overcome bladder cancer a year before his death and was finally enjoying being healthy again and spending time with his family.

FFF placed these two flags at Barney's gravesite yesterday in Orem, UT. These two flags were all that were there for the groundskeepers said that deer had been coming in and eating all the flowers that were left for Barney. He is laid to rest next to his father. 🇺🇸

Two donors were found for new flag lockboxes that will secure the flags at the Main police Station. Both were asked what they would like etched on to their respective lockbox. The Tucson Police Officer's Association, who has been beyond phenomenal with their support of FFF, wanted their logo on theirs. My 81-year-old father wanted my late brother, his youngest son's name on his.

71 years ago today, Feb 23,1945 there were two American Flags raised on Mt Suribachi. The picture you see here is of the first smaller sized American Flag raised and photographed by Lou Lowry. Most know of the second raising thanks to Joe Rosenthal. Pfc James Michaels is in front holding the carbine. Many of these men, including three of the six soldiers seen raising the flag in the famous Rosenthal photo, were killed before the conclusion of the Battle for Iwo Jima in late March.
Iwo Jima was the only battle by the U.S. Marine Corps in which the American casualties exceeded the Japanese, although Japanese combat deaths numbered three times as many American deaths.🇺🇸
